Okay so I was super hesitant about this – it looks like that slime from those hilarious 90s Nickelodeon shows like Double Dare. Ridiculous.
But I gave it a shot because the post said it didn’t taste like healthy goop. Good thing I’m a trusting person. And she was right! For a juice made of spinach and peanut butter and yogurt- was actually pretty dang good!!
Green Monster Juice. Or Elphaba Juice.
- 1 slides banana, frozen or not
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1/2 cup (or one to go cup) Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- 4 cups baby spinach (more or less)
- Blend banana and peanut butter
- Add yogurt and milk- blend that all together
- Fill the rest of your blender with baby spinach and, you guessed it, blend!!
Taste Rating: 8.5/10
Other than the green appearance, this juice tastes really good! You can’t taste the spinach, so it mostly just tastes like banana and peanut butter – although I’d add more peanut butter next time 🙂 And I expected it to be more of a smoothie consistency, so I may try adding ice or freezing my banana if I make this again. But it’s a great way to force me to eat spinach. I also have a reeeeeeeally hard time with the consistency of Greek yogurt (I know, I know. I’m so not trendy) but this was great! No weird yogurt consistency.
Ease of Cooking: 9.5/10
Seriously. It’s just a blender. Great for a quick breakfast or after workout boost. And yummy 🙂
The hardest part was washing out the blender.
